EDF chooses supplier for 49 MW UK storage project

8 February 2017

EDF Energy Renewables has selected Nidec ASI to provide a 49 MW energy storage system that will provide balancing services to the UK grid.

The contract follows a successful bid by EDF in National Grid’s Enhance Frequency Response (EFR) tender in 2016, under which a total of 200 MW of energy storage capacity was awarded.

Nidec ASI will provide a battery energy storage system with a total capacity of 49 MW and 25 MWh. It will be built at an existing gas-fired power station in West Burton in the East Midlands region.

Nidec will provide the power conversion system, while EDF will provide the energy management system.

The contract follows an earlier deal signed with National Grid for a 10 MW storage system, Nidec said.

Last year the firm supplied and commissioned a 90 MW battery energy storage system for Steag in Germany.
